Jack played in his fifth game of the 2008 little league season against the Cardinals.
He continues to make good contact with the ball. On Friday night, he and Tim hit baseballs against a pitching machine; this extra practice is paying off. Jack was 2 for 3. In his first at-bat, he walked for the first time this season and eventually came around to score. He singled into left center in his second at-bat and again came around to score. In his third at-bat, Jack singled on a sharp grounder that bounced off the shin of the third baseman. His last at bat was his hardest hit. Jack lined one right at the shortstop. Unfortunately, the other team had the tallest kid at shortstop and he was barely able to jump straight up and snag the ball.
Based on the statistics for the team posted by the coach, Jack is batting .500 with an on-base percentage of .524.
Jack continues to play just shortstop. He played four innings of a five inning game there.
The Padres scored seven runs in the top of the first inning. They held on to win by a score of 14 to 11 in five innings. Their record is now 2 wins and 3 losses.
